    Next month, I'll be taking a vacation in Europe. My question is regarding the HP power adapter, and more specifically, about the interchangeable tip that would allow the adapter to fit the European plugs...

    Where can I buy that tip? HP is clueless (North American HP, that is)...

    Good point, but I was referring to charging the TP during my stay in Europe... the power adapter supports 110-240V, so I would just need to replace the removable tip with different prongs.

    Maybe this will help:

    ... except I need one for Euro plugs...

    Rather than buying any specific charger for the Euro zone, just buy a plug converter like this one: Amazon.com: All-in-One Travel Power Plug Adapter for US, UK, EU, AU: Electronics

    I've also been looking for that European plug as I only got the American plug with my TP and the TS.

    Here is one, expensive package, with the whole shaboom that I'd expect possibly being available in US too;
    HP Touchpad International Travel Power Adapter Kit - Staples

    An alternative is one of those pesky add-on's they sell "everywhere";

    you might be able to still find the palm 'international' charging kit? The connections are the same as they are for the TouchPad charger.
    I assume the North America version didn't come with any other adapters then? That's interesting as the European TouchPad came with a few, and I'm fairly certain one of them fits the North American style sockets.

    No wonder the European versions are so much more expensive

    Thanks for the information. Since the adapter itself can handle 110-240v, I just need to use a plug adapter.

    My original goal was to get a new plug (from HP) and just twist off the existing 110v one and replace it with a 240v continental plug, to take advantage of the flexible design.

    you get one @ the int'l airport, or online. Don't spend a lot of bread on 'em unless you travel a lot outside of the US.
    I'm sure if you ask around family/friends one has one and you can use it for that time.
